For those that buy a new in the box gun –

Do you buy a new gun that has just started being produced (example Beretta PX4 Compact) or do you buy a new gun that has been out for a while (example Beretta PX4 full size)?

I typically wait a while, but don't often buy something that hasn't been around a while anyway...

I believe Glock fixed the issue by the 04 recoil spring. The G19 Gen 4 had the 23 recoil spring and a lot of people had FTE problems because they were shooting the Federal 115 which is seconds by the way and UMC which is also weak.
Oh come on.....if you paid thousands of dollars for the very best, top grade 1911 and some clown comes along and beats you with a $400 plastic pistol, wouldn't you hate Glocks too?-

I don't really sweat the new model hiccups.  Most of your better factories will take care of you...notice I said 'better' because Taurus does NOT fall into that category.

I wait till they don't make it anymore, then I pay 4x the price. Like Colt revolvers.

I'm a NIB buyer.  I'm one of those guys that likes to wear in the item myself, rather than have someone else do it.  Not into sloppy seconds... :p

Yeah... I pay a little more as a result.  I'm good with that.
